Wumping Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time trailer drops and instantly erases nearly 22 years of waiting for a sequel to Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
It’s been a long wait and as the game itself states, it’s about time. An announcement trailer for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has been unveiled and along with showing the expected frenetic running gameplay style there’s also some incredible graphics on display that should please even the most discerning of Crash Bandicoot fans. The game, which has been developed by Toys for Bob and will be published by parent company Activision, has recently been teased and leaked, but now the bandicoot is well and truly out of the bag.
Although there have been other Crash Bandicoot games released since 1998’s Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, it will be 2020’s Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time that will be the chronological successor. Doctor Neo Cortex and Doctor Nefarious Trophy have now escaped from their timeless prison and are busy mucking up the natural laws of the universe, thus forcing Crash and his sister Coco into dealing with their nemeses once again. So of course there are pirates, dinosaurs, and jungles to deal with and new worlds to explore, such as a futuristic city, underwater landscape, and a seemingly haunted underworld.
It’s practically impossible not to get sucked into the game upon viewing the trailer for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. The graphics look well-crafted and detailed, the colors are garish and wild, and there is a fun vibe and sense of nostalgia appropriately running throughout the clip. Crash Bandicoot fans who pre-order the game digitally, for either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, will receive a “totally tubular skin” for the main characters of Crash and Coco at the time of launch. Crash Bandicoot 4 is scheduled for an October 2 release, and it’s about wumping time.
